Qatar may not stage World Cup 2022: leaked report

Sat, Oct. 7, 2017
CAIRO – 7 October 2017: Management consultants Cornerstone Global said in a top-secret study, passed to the BBC, that it’s certainly possible that Qatar will not host the tournament due to “rising political risk”.

The study warned, according to BBC on Friday, the constructing companies working on Qatar’s $200 billion infrastructure necessary for the 2022 World Cup said, “Qatar may not be able to pay for the contractors.”

A number of regional experts and tournament insiders said, according to the study, that they are not sure whether Doha will actually host the 2022 World Cup.

The study also reported that calling off Qatar hosting the World Cup 2022 will likely be abrupt and would put the contractors in a dangerous situation, and that problem may not be resolved easily.

Qatar’s 2022 Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) questioned the motives of such report, and assured that the “illegal blockade” by the Arab quartet will not affect the preparations for the tournament.

In September, the Arab Federation for Human Rights called for pulling the 2022 World Cup from Qatar by providing two reports. One report claims that Qatar monetarily bribed to host the World Cup, Saudi News Channel reported.
